Indigo Systems' Omega(TM) Camera - Now in Ruggedized Enclosure
September 3, 2003 - Goleta, CA - Indigo Systems, a world supplier of infrared cameras, software, and complete camera systems, now offers the tiny Omega thermal imager in a ruggedized enclosure for extreme environmental conditions. This high-performance infrared camera is the smallest (1.35"x1.45"x1.90") and lightest (under 120 grams) IR imaging device in the world. Omega is made with Indigo's uncooled VOx (vanadium oxide) microbolometer detector and proprietary on-focal-plane signal processing. The ruggedized Omega is also available with a FireWire(TM) (Apple Computer) option to increase modularity and extend the flexible architecture for custom configurations.
Omega's excellent thermal resolution (<40 mK when normalized to f/1.0) and uncompromising image quality is ideal for stand-alone IR imaging applications or as an OEM core where weight, space and power are important considerations. The tiny Omega has low power consumption, low heat load, long battery life and an instant turn-on signal offered with a standard input voltage range of 3.5 to 9.0 VDC. Featuring both analog RS-170A (CCIR) and 14-bit digital output, the Omega has an automatic function to switch into extended temperature range mode, allowing scenes to be imaged in temperatures up to 400° C. This unique, ruggedized little camera is ideal for firefighting, security and surveillance, search and rescue, industrial process monitoring, machine vision, building inspection, unmanned vehicles, robotics, and military applications.
